Ram Singh, 42, travelled 6 months ago from his home Bihar to Delhi. His son, Mohan, who is 10 years old, was diagnosed with a heart disease and needed special treatment.
Ram Singh runs grocery shop and earns Rs. 200-300 per day. He somehow managed to get 30,000 loan from someone in village.
He lives and sleeps with his son on road outside Delhi’s premier AIIMS hospital.
They are among hundreds of people who spend days and nights on the pavement outside AIIMS.
Some of them are patients waiting for appointments, others have been given dates for surgeries but can’t afford to go home and come back.
They also struggle for never-ending queues, delays, waiting for various tests and procedures, expensive medicines, they have to fight for basic amenities like food and water.
Some of them don’t even have the strength to get up and stand in the queue.
